The Queue, It Is A Fallin'...

Mon Sep 28, 2009 8:09 pm

Just noticed that the queue has gone from over 7,000 on Saturday to nearly 5,000 today. Bravo screeners for a great job!

Dan...I was just about to post the same thing. I've noticed the last couple of days the screening process seemed alot faster! So much fun when you get a couple screened a day earlier than you were expected. Thanks guys!  bigthumbsup

Usually happens this time of year. Everyone's back from summer holidays I guess. Last year I seem to recall it got down to ~2000 and 2-3 days wait. Just like the economy, it fluctuates up and down....

But you're right, thanks to the screeners for getting back and putting in their time into it.

Yup, much thanks to the screeners.

It might also be caused by the sun going down much earlier now in the northern hemisphere.

I expect our southern hemisphere friends will pick up the slack though.  Wink

Now is the time to start shooting. The light is better, and there is usually not as much heat haze.

Yup, just when runway 27 at BOS picks up for usage, the sun gets in the right place for it. Now it's whether or not the sun is out on the weekends!

Couldn't agree more! I have had countless shots ruined by heat haze!

Great post and thanks a ton to the screeners!

Hi all

Thanks for your comments so far.

Screeners have been doing a great job in reducing the queue considering how busy their private lives are. Going forward we like to try out different things. Things that may enhance the screening procedure to the benefit of you guys, the photographers.

Quite a few screeners have been out of action recently due to holidays but most are back now and working hard.

Within the next week and a half we will be adding another two screeners. I will be sending out mails to all those who applied very soon.

Please carry on uploading!

Regards
